Event description
Join us for a fun day of mindful outdoor adventuring as we train for the breathtaking Franconia Ridge Loop in early October!

About this Event

This hike is one in a series of hikes I'm organizing that's designed to help people prepare for an adventure getaway I'm leading for the Franconia Ridge Loop October 4-6, whose rigorously challenging trails are rewarded with some of the most breathtakingly mountain vistas in all of New England!

Each hike leading up to our Franconia trek gets progressively more challenging, allowing new hikers to gain strength and confidence over time while making new friends and connecting with nature. Activities are free with suggested donation.
